All Tomorrow's Parties (6:00)

Cover of The Best Of The Velvet Underground

From The Best Of The Velvet Underground and 26 other releases

“All Tomorrow’s Parties” is a song by The Velvet Underground, written by Lou Reed and released on the group’s 1967 debut album, The Velvet Underground & Nico.
Inspiration for the song came from Reed’s observation of the Warhol clique; according to Reed, the song is “a very apt description of certain people at the Factory at the time. … I watched Andy. I watched Andy watching everybody. I would hear people say the most astonishing things, the craziest things, the funniest things, the saddest things.” The song was Andy Warhol’s favorite by The Velvet Underground.

The song has notably lent its name to a music festival, a William Gibson novel, and a Yu Lik-wai film. The song also appears prominently in the horror film The Lords of Salem.
